Not a bad fruit beer. The apricot was fairly evident for me, in both smell and taste. Very cloudy with mild carbonation. It would be good on a hot day but other than that not too appealing.

Dense head initially, partially receding, hazy, limp carbonation, fine bubbles, some lacing.
Aroma of apricot syrup. Flavor: syrupy, moderately sweet, slightly sour, apricot, adjuncts.
No bitterness. Blah.

3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Sweet apricot nectar aroma, and touch of wheat/yeast. Pleasing. Bright amber-orange cloudy liquid with thin, off-white, foamy, lacing head. Medium watery smooth body, medium carb. Citrusy/tangy in taste. Good amount of hops, wheaty but a little bitter. Can taste the apricot but not as pleasing as the aroma. Imparts some undesirable sour notes. Mild astringent finish and apricot/wheat after. Sourness detracts.

I can't get over the smell! It makes me want to fill a bathtub with it and bath in it. Nice color with a very big apricot and honey taste. Good for a fruit beer.

Yummmm... This beer made me want to clone it. Mine was dark and I added too much apricot extract. Close, tho!
The smell is great. Its always murky looking to me. The beer is lite wheat tasting with a finish of mellow apricot. This one was so good on tap at the saucer.... Too bad they got rid of it.... Only two bad things are color/price....
This is a top10 beer of mine!

Pours cloudy orange with white head. Smells very strongly of apricot. Has a very refreshing apricot flavor that doesn't taste artificial and isn't too sweet. Finishes with crisp maltiness.

This beer poured an orange color and the taste was full of apricot fruitiness. However, this is not really to my liking because I like apricots and beer, just not together.

Initially I was disappointed with this beer. I am not really into the Hef/blonde vairety if beers but this was just watery and bland. Apricot is jsut an afterthought. Bleek

Pale orange color, very generous off-white head. Aroma is definitely strong of apricots. Flavor is initially very apricot-y, wanes to light malt, and sharply drops to blandsville. Finish is rather brackish and lifeless. A decent fruit beer, but far from the best. It would make a good introductory fruit beer to a new drinker, however, as it is very unoffensive and delivers exactly what it promises.

a good ale that does not lie when it claims to taste of apricots. I've met some non-beer drinkers who like this one.
